  • 200g of sugar

  • Supreme two oranges by cutting off the bottom and the top. Remove the peel and the pith then cut the orange segments out of their membranes into a bowl. Chop the segments into small pieces.
  • Juice the remaining orange and add enough the yogurt to the juice so you have ⅔ of a cup all up. Pour the mixture into the bowl with the sugar and whisk.

  • In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, bicarb soda and salt.
  • Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ones. Add in the pieces of orange segments.
  • Pour the batter into a lightly greased and floured loaf tin.
  • Bake the loaf for 1 hour, until a knife inserted into centre comes out clean.
  • Cool on a rack, then remove it from the tin and cool to room temperature.
  • Make the honey-blood orange compote by supreming 3 more blood oranges. Mix with 1 tbsp of honey. Let sit for 5 minutes, then stir gently.
  • Serve the loaf with the honey-orange compote.
